Davide Cambria

Davide Cambria is a self-taught painter born in Messina, Italy. He creates rich and dramatic portrait paintings layered with abstraction and emotional depth, often exploring the concept of identity and deconstruction of the face. His works are in private collections across Europe, United States, Asia and Australia. He currently lives and works in Rome. Explore Davide’s portfolio

Joyce Dunn

Joyce Dunn, an Italian artist based in Rome, finds inspiration in the chaos and confusion within urban cities: noise, traffic, buildings, and graffiti. She works exclusively in oil paint and watercolor because of its translucent nature that allows her to paint in layers and create an illusion of depth. Her works are also heavily influenced by other famous abstract expressionist artists like Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.

Paolo Terdich

Paolo Terdich was born in Piacenza, Italy. He is known for his dramatic use of light and shadow in his art, also known as chiaroscuro technique.  The stark contrast between the background and figures enables his works to have an immediate and awe-inspiring realism. His work has been presented at various solo exhibitions and renowned art fairs worldwide. Explore Paolo’s portfolio.
